Pencil Vs Camera - 30

Newer Older

I took this photo near Hannut in Belgium. I also made the rough sketch. I only drew things that came to my mind when I started this project... Sort of an improvisation. The letters placed randomly form the word "PENCIL". There is "Dust" written on the flag, because photographers always complain about dust in their lense and because earth is made of stardust... A superhero is trying to get out of the camera, searching for new ideas, while a smurf is having fun on a horse... A plane, a tricycle, butterflies, a barcode, a guitar and many other objects are getting out of the camera. If you wish, you can view some details of this picture HERE

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album. The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10.

NEW: I'm now making music, JOIN ME ON SOUNDCLOUD!


>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "The camera never lies... or does it? The photographer's eye is met with this fantastical scene" (Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)

Sunshine Flower

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Day is coming clear as light
With its wings of inside fire
Like the morning onward bright
In its accomplishing desire
Hours drop in together close
With runs and roams of drift
Creation beautiful as the rose
In the mind to go and uplift

Summer sunshine flower
Where little dreams go by
Through the endless hour
From the deep and blue sky

Tranquil wingspan ways
Motions on a weaving stream
Flickering mirror plays
With light that timeless seem

Every look in dissolved freedom
Catching moment of dark way
Giving silhouette ad-infinitum
When its fire lights the day
Echo’s flutter in distance yield
Every growth in roots clear
Open heart in artistic field
Now the marvels have opened here

Summer morning shower
Through the day to night
Bringing soothing dower
For the new day and light

Silence flowing yellow glow
For just the two of us
In its timeless motion slow
Of light that comes across

That is ageless on wonder asking
Rising above the earth’s hill
Every instants of creation tasking
That you dream must now fulfill
Thru the seconds of their beat
Going higher then all before
On like smoke to realities treat
And opening up again a new door
